The information leaks continue when it comes to the iPhone 6

Apple definitely isn’t the only game in town when it comes to smartphones, but the fervor surrounding each upcoming iPhone release definitely eclipses smartphone launches from other manufacturers. In keeping with that tradition, physical 3D models of the device compared to the current flagship iPhone 5s along with supposed schematics of the upcoming iPhone 6 have been leaked to the internet.
The physical mockups of the iPhone 6 show a device that is thinner, wider and taller than the iPhone 5s – the mockup measure in at 5.43” long, 2.63” wide, and 0.27” thick. Whereas the iPhone 5s has more hardened edges, the iPhone 6 has “softer” curves reminiscent of the original iPhone.

The latest mockup also clearly shows the repositioning of the lock button from the top of the device to the right hand side. Given the iPhone 6 is quite a it taller than the iPhone 5s, the new button placement will allow users to more easily power on/off the device one-handed.

One thing to note, however, is that the mockup doesn’t appear to show provisions for the dual-LED camera flash as seen on the iPhone 5s.
Also leaked over the weekend from were 3D design schematics for the iPhone 6. The schematics match up nicely with the physical mockups, so either this is very close to the final design for the iPhone 6 or someone really has a lot of time on their hands to fake all of this leaked information.

The iPhone 6 is said to feature a 4.7” display (with a much higher resolution than the existing 1136x640 iPhone 5s), A8 processor, 802.11ac wireless, and hopefully LTE-A support.

I agree with you -- I know it's different for everyone, but a larger phone may be an issue with multi-device users... I have no need for larger than what my iphone already is -- Anything larger, and I'm encroaching on my perfectly sized 7" tablet..

I know it's all subjective, but I think this may hurt sales with CEOs and other rich folk types who are typically your big adopters in business... If I have to buy a gangster chained-sized phone, I may as well save a few bucks and switch to android.

But then they suck you back in with that damned sapphire screen and wireless charging...

I am sure they will still have a 4 inch model. It's not taking anything away, just adding new size options, becasue hte majority of people want it.
